already received tens of thousands of ballots. the department now has to work through 93,000 more ballots that are still pouring into city hall. >> everything after that initial count, we have to restart the process so preprocessed to flow into the tabulators. >> 93,000 number. that number had actually gone down to 90,000 last night. now thgot that down to 87,000 by tabulating all those votes. but then today they received an additional 5,000 votes. so that means that they are now back up to 93,000 votes a lot of votes still to go through with the margin still tightening. the department of elections will continuing accepting ballots with a tuesday postmark until friday and is tabulating them as they roll in. the department is saying that some organizations may project
5:01 pm
a winner in this race over the weekend. so again, this race still tightening. one final note, earlier today we were inside city hall in the department of elections and while we were there, we saw representatives from both london breed's campaign and mark leno's campaign in the department of elections monitoring the votes. they are keeping a close eye on the race. you said it before, frank. the margins in this race now razor-thin, just 255 votes separating the two out of 148,500 votes counted so far. the count continues and we'll get our next update at 4 p.m. tomorrow as more votes continue to be counted. clearly this one is still a nail-biter here in san francisco. >> so how many votes can they count per day and again, as you said, are we looking probably at saturday or sunday before we finally know who has won the race for mayor of san
5:02 pm
francisco? >> reporter: well, so that is -- the department of elections says they are going to certify the results at some later date. it will take longer to certify before the projected winner because at some point the math will work out in such a way that those who can predict will say yes, we can call the race one way or another. they can count 15,000 to 20,000 votes a day. that means they are counting each one of these cards individually and it's a four- card ballot so they are processing through as many as they possibly can. keep in mind this might not all be over even once we get the results because one of these candidates with a margin like this might very well ask for a recount. if they ask, it could be anything from having the minutes kick through the numbers one more time to a hand recount which would take a long time and would be very expensive. remember, the person who asks for that recount has to pay
5:03 pm
for it. >> christien kafton outside city hall in san francisco tonight, thank you. also in san francisco, we are following some developing news this evening. police have now just confirmed that two people have been shot in the city's mission district. the gunfire was first record about 3 p.m. near treat and cesar chavez streets. we are told that both of those victims are now in the hospital. unfortunately, though, there's no word on their conditions. stay with ktvu news, though. we'll have a live report from the scene coming up in our 6:00 hour. well, the tesla model x that crashed in mountain view sped up seconds before crashing according to federal officials. 38-year-old walter han was killed in the crash. the ntsb report says that three seconds before the crash, the car sped up from 62 to 71 miles per hour. it did not brake before slamming into a highway barrier and catching fire on highway 101 back on march 23rd. the report says that the driver was using tesla's auto

pilot system almost continuously for about 19 minutes before the crash. the ntsb says the cause remains under investigation. tesla says that drivers should not rely on autopilot to avoid a collision. nearly 50,000 pounds of illegal fireworks off the streets tonight after one of the biggest fireworks bust in california history. and some of those fireworks were taken off the streets of the bay area. cal fire says 7 people are now in custody in connection with this bust. ktvu's paul chambers has been following the story and has more. >> it started after they received a tip from a person living in the central valley leading them to arresting 7 people and seizing fireworks from six different cities in our state. reporter: these are some of the people that cal fire say were arrested for illegally importing, storing, distributing and selling nearly 25 tons of dangerous fireworks all over the state for more than 30 years. >> when you talk about a stockpile of illegal ordnance coming into the state from all
5:05 pm
over this countries that piles higher than this state capital, four semi truck trailers full of what are essentially weapons of wildfire. >> reporter: here's a pictures of some of the confiscated fireworks. cal fire says the majority of them originated in montana and nevada where the fireworks are legal. most of them are aerial fireworks like those you see at shows. cal fire says roughly $43 million in direct property damage is a result of fireworks each year in our state which leads on average to more than 18,000 fires, 40 injuries and three deaths. >> that means fewer fires, fewer injuries, fewer deaths, less property damage and less impact to the environment, seized fireworks more n. than $115,000 in cash, firearms and other items in the raid, which happened in modesto, hayward, walnut creek, oakland and other places. those arrested face felony and
5:06 pm
misdemeanor charges. and now that they have these illegal items off the street, the next part is tougher, getting rid of them. >> our communities have as to store these and find an opportunity to dispose of them property. they contain hazardous materials that are hard. we can't just put them in any old landfill. >> the legislature is going to step up and i'll be working with governor brown to introduce legislation to see through his proposal. >> reporter: now, what he is referring to is the governor is proposing an increase in funding for enforcement and education with the proper disposal of illegal fireworks. governor brown added it to his may budget revision. >> paul chambers in our newsroom tonight, thank you. san francisco police investigated a shooting that took the life of a woman in the city's mission terrace neighborhood. the gunfire was reported on mission street near santa rosa avenue just after 11:00 this morning. the woman died at the hospital this afternoon. the circumstances of this shooting are under investigation. and we are told so far, no arrests have been made. oakland police say they will step up patrols after a

5:08 pm
disagreement, that led up to the shooting. >> reporter: a 35-year-old man was hit twice by gunfire. he had nonlife-threatening injuries and was in stable condition at a hospital. police say this was an isolated incident and that the victim was targeted but not by any cav fans. >> all the individuals that were involved in this argument were all wearing the same team colors. so it wasn't a rivalry between two teams. >> reporter: the warriors and oracle arena are hosting another watch party for game 4 this friday. and police say there will be extra officers on hand. there will also be security and metal detectors inside the arena. >> we want everyone to know that when they come out to the watch party on friday night, this is a celebration, a safe place for everyone. >> we are here to support that and keep it safe, keep it positive. >> reporter: oakland mayor libby schaaf says most fans in blue and gold know to stay out of a black and white. >> and oakland has had a great track record of responsible
5:09 pm
positive celebration. we intend to keep it that way. so we encourage everybody to celebrate the warriors but do it in a way that's respectful of your neighbor. >> reporter: so the bottom line is oakland police and the mayor hope that any aggression stays on the court tomorrow night in a hoped-for win against the cavaliers. henry lee, ktvu fox 2 news. a man accused of shooting a gun at a san jose elementary school is back in jail without bail. 21-year-old nicholas o'connor made an appearance in court yesterday. o'connor was arrested last november after he allegedly used a shotgun to shoot the security cameras at bookson elementary school. he went to school in the district. since then he has been attending utah state university while free on $150,000 bail. according to prosecutor, he contacted several students at utah state asking them to buy

5:15 pm

5:16 pm
kevin durant from downtown! it's a six-point game! >> pretty much never gets old. one of those highlights that warriors fans will always remember. kevin durant with that three- pointer. now the warriors one win away from their third nba championship in four years. scott reiss reports from cleveland. >> reporter: yes. all quiet here, guys, outside quicken loans arena which is a stark contrast to last night and certainly to what we will see tomorrow night prior to game 4. and you mentioned it. the warriors in position to sweep the cavs out of the nba finals and join a select group of teams that have won three nba championships in four seasons. now, the "dubs" did get a practice in today at least most of them did. klay thompson gave the ankle a rest and he watched e sidelines. draymond green, well, he messed around a little bit. everybody else except for steph curry got their shots
5:17 pm
up. curry was the only warriors who didn't make an appearance. really this was all a formality. they have obviously done this drill before with the chance to clinch. the crazy thing is, they have gotten to this point without even playing their best basketball for an extended period. >> now that we are one game away, we would like to eliminate that inconsistency and put forth our best effort, our best game tomorrow. and that's the plan. >> we have been in this situation before. you know, we know what to expect. um, we know what type of team they have and, um, how they're gonna come out. >> it helps just knowing what's ahead of you, knowing what it takes, knowing that there's a light that's incredible at the end of the tunnel. um, just helps you push through it. >> reporter: of course, the cavs players many of them have also been through this before, this uphill battle against the warriors. they know it's nearly impossible to come back from a 3-0 deficit. it's never been done before in
5:18 pm
the finals. no way to know exactly how they will come out tomorrow. i can, however, put to bed the rumors that they will install custom hoops for the cavs to shoot at tomorrow night to try and level the playing field and give them a puncher's chance in the series. >> that's my kind of -- ha ha! my kind of hoop there. scott, so, you know, obviously cleveland's back against the wall. i'm sure they are going to come out fired up. but there is that small part where i think a lot of people would love to see if the warriors by chance lose tomorrow, the warriors winning the championship at oracle next monday night. that would be pretty cool. >> reporter: i'm sure there is a contingency among the fans that would rather see them clinch in five. the players i can assure you do not ascribe to that line of thought. i broached the subject with shaun livingston, is there a small part of you that would like to do it at home in game five? he said no. because we did it last year and we won it at home a year ago. i think that got the home
5:19 pm
clinch out of the system. now it's just get it done, doesn't matter where or when. >> scott reiss in cleveland tonight, thank you. >> going to be an exciting game. let's turn things over to our chief meteorologist bill martin for a look at the forecast and another really pleasant day out there. >> it's going to continue a little bit. temperatures -- we have been saying this, as heather mentioned, high temperature, low temperature, um, fluctuation, literally for the entire spring and as we go into summer and it continues as you see here. today's temperatures warmed up a little bit. it's going up and down. it's not a big dipper roller coaster but kind of a roller coaster still. by tuesday the mid-90s which is by no means a heat wave, just warmer, about where we should be into monday and tuesday. so a nice weekend ahead. you can see where the heat is you know. it's really about the south and the central south on this
5:20 pm
area phoenix and out towards eastern -- or west texas. this system here it's kind of windy today. this is still that same system here which is bogging up the works a little bit. but it gradually weakens. you actually can see it's weaker than yesterday at this point and that weakening is what will allow the high to establish itself with a little more fervor and with that, we'll see temperatures warm up. air quality won't be as great. fire danger will come up a little bit, as well. got some wind. winds were blowing. we had some 30-mile-an-hour gusts in parts of the delta and out by sfo. yeah, 33 miles an hour at fairfield, gusts there. and so that's a function of that high building in. gusts at 30 at sfo. a little warmer today. but by no means again not a heat wave on the way. just not as cool as it has been. right now, temperatures -- well, here's now and it's 8 degrees warmer in concord. concord is only 76 degrees. yet it's 8 degrees warmer right now than it was last night at this time.
5:21 pm
so you see it's really been kind of a cooldown. slow warmup. feels warmer today but it's still below average for many. and as you go into the forecast, this homes weakens a little bit. so we -- this low pressure center weakens a little bit. so we go slightly warmer on friday. slightly cooler on saturday. and then it goes. high pressure comes in and we get very warm on sunday, monday and tuesday. there's the fog, patchy fog tomorrow morning. the fog has had a rough time forming but as that low weakens, the high will let the fog establish itself a little bit better. nice looking weekend ahead, though. no heat wave, just warmer. see you back here. "heal the bay" puts out a report card on beach pollution. northern california has seven of the ten worst in the state. >> and later coming up new at 6:00 a violent attack caught on camera. a man in a suit kicking another man on the street. the search tonight for the attacker.
5:22 pm

5:23 pm
5:24 pm
e summer season is to begin, and the bad beach report is out. according to an organization called "heal the bay," seven of california's worst beaches are here in northern california. ktvu's tom vacar is at lakeshore parks marina lagoon
5:25 pm
in san mateo and tom, that made the bummer beach list. >> reporter: it's at the top of the list for the bay area. in fact, of those 10 bottom beaches in all of california, four of them are right here in the bay area. reporter: there are 118 northern california beaches. in northern california, two bummer beaches are in humboldt county. one is in santa cruz county and four are in san mateo county. >> the bay area's most polluted beach and california's second most polluted beach is lakeshore beach here in san mateo. >> reporter: two poor water circulation and high bacteria counts. >> weak circulation and waves lowers the dilution rate at the site. >> reporter: at number three linda mar beach on the pacific due to polluted runoff from nearby san pedro creek. >> located at the mouth of
5:26 pm
flowing streams and creeks often have elevated bacteria levels due to many pollution sources draining into the creek and out into the ocean. >> i don't like it. i come here to surf with my family and children. so yeah, i don't like it if it's polluted, of course. >> reporter: number five, half moon bay's roosevelt beach with high bacteria counts when it rains. number 10, half moon bay's surfers beach, also with high bacteria when it rains. >> rain flushes contaminants and bacteria sources from our streets including fertilizer, pet waste and automotive fluids into our urban make our money off >> reporter: but fear not because the report card is mostly stellar. in fact, bean hollow state beach near pescadero in san mateo county was a plus, one of the state's consistently cleanest beaches. >> 96% of the 400 beaches monitored throughout california during the summer
5:27 pm
dry weather which runs from april through october receive very good to excellent a or b grades. in northern california, 80% of the 96 monitored beaches received an a or b grade during the summer months. >> reporter: you can check out realtime pollution levels at four popular beaches including ocean beach, rio del mar and cowell beaches near santa cruz as well as the beach in humboldt county at beachreportcard.org. one final note. here at this particular lagoon beach, the problem is not enough water washing in and out because it's really kind of a river, but it's not a very strong flowing river because it's really not a river, it's more of an estuary. but the primary cause here is goose poop. when these geese come in and they leave their feces all over the place, it gets into the water and creates this problem. and the city has a very robust plan to deal with it without killing the geese. tom vacar, ktvu fox 2 news.
5:28 pm
>> so i get that these beaches made the list. but i'm curious if we were to speak in practical terms, if you have a family and you want to go to one of these beaches, what does this report mean? >> reporter: the thing that's important is you want to go to one of these beaches, you just to go down there and look at the signage except for the ones online and more and more are coming online. you have to look at the signage. if there are any warnings, like for example, they have a sign here that says that there is a bacteria problem here but today there's no such thing and says it's open. you're welcome to use the beach. so it really -- you have to check in advance and sometimes that means having to go to the beach. but not far away were beaches from there that were very, very good shape. >> yeah. just be prepared and check ahead as you mentioned. all right. tom, thank you so much. a rough start to a trip to the bay area for a dog show. a van that was filled with dogs stolen from a fast-food parking lot. fortunately there is a happy ending to this tale.
